If you wish to conduct business in the City of Campbell River, you must apply for and maintain a current business licence. (Unless you can prove that your business is exempted by either Provincial or Federal Statute or Regulation.)
The cost for a business licence is $150 and the expiry date is February 27 of each year. Licences are granted for a one-year period and renew on February 28 regardless of start date. Renewal notices are mailed out mid-February and must be paid by March 30. If payment is not received on or before that date, an automatic late charge of $25 is applied.
If you have applied for an inter-municipal/inter-community licence in addition to your primary, you will receive the invoice for your primary business licence first, and only after that is paid will the invoice for your inter-municipal licence be mailed out. Licences are granted for a one-year period and all fees are non-refundable.
Should your business close, you are required to notify the Business Licence department in writing. Your licence is linked to the civic address submitted on the application; should you change location, you will need to inform the Business Licence department to have the licence reviewed and reissued.
